Even in the darkest times, Elmo (shown here) remains eager and upbeat. So now, of course, he’ll have a special during the coronavirus shutdown.
“Sesame Street: Elmo’s Playdate” will be 7 p.m. Tuesday (April 14) on HBO, many of its sister channels, and PBS Kids. Guests include Lin-Manuel Miranda, Anne Hathaway and Tracee Ellis Ross.
The half-hour special aims at helping kids and families feel connected. It will range from families baking cookies to celebrities don songs and silly dances.
That will air simultaneously on other Warner Brothers cable channels – TBS, TNT, Cartoon Network, Boomerang, truTV and HBO Latino – and will later reach England, Canada and Australia.
